Bayern Munich vs. Real Madrid: Betting odds, picks, analysis and news

Bayern Munich will look to end a three-game losing skid against Real Madrid when the two clubs face off in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semifinals on Tuesday at Allianz Arena. The Germans have been in dominant form on their home turf in the competition, winning their last 13 straight, but they'll face a Los Blancos side that is brimming with confidence after knocking off defending champion Manchester City in the quarterfinals.

Real Madrid cruised through the group stage of this season's Champions League, going unbeaten with four wins and two draws, but they've been tested in the knockout rounds. Los Blancos needed two shots to get by last-place Benfica in the Round of 16, winning the away leg 3-2 before a scoreless draw at home. They then needed extra time to get past Chelsea in the quarterfinals, prevailing 2-0 at home before drawing 0-0 at Stamford Bridge to advance.

Bayern Munich, meanwhile, scored seven goals in two matches against Salzburg in the Round of 16, winning 5-2 away and 2-1 at home. They then dispatched their German rival Borussia Dortmund in the quarterfinals, winning 3-1 in Dortmund before a 1-0 victory at home to advance.

This will be the first meeting between the clubs since 2018, when Madrid won the semifinals en route to the championship. They also met in the 2013-14 semifinals, when Madrid won both legs, and in the 2016-17 quarterfinals, when the Spanish club won the first leg 2-1 at home before a 3-2 victory in Germany.
